    How do you come to the point of defending the grove? Is there a time limit/number of long rests?

    Apparently that really obvious stone door covered in vines is hard to miss.

    Such is the nature of cramped maps. Crashed tentacle creature ship there, grove here, goblin camp yonder, underdark elsewhere, abandoned chapel, hag swamp and more. All right next to each other.

    ok but why give the location then go back to defend it? is it a strategic decision? that it would be easier to defend a "siege" than murdering them at their base?

    I can't remember specifics, but you are basically being a double agent for the drow. She sends you in to open the gate from the inside so they don't have to siege the grove. In the video the player betrays the drow.

    When I see BG3 inventory, I wonder why it has so much fucking room in it. I grant that there were bags in previous games that improved that, but you at least had some serious inventory limitations early on.

    Yeah.

    Loosely related -- I did make use of chests and crates in other areas to block off enemy movement to make chokeholds, which works surprisingly well. Tried doing a solo ranger build and was using a lot of gimmicks/tricks to get around (lots of pushing of fledges, too).

    Overall I like it, it's fun. Any system that lets you get creative is a-okay with me.

    Because market research says that inventory management is bad.

    I guess this dialogue choice has less to do with the deity and more with the healing domain which I've chosen. Hopefully I'll get some proper Laduguer choices down the line.

    You know what this game could use? Some sort of iron-man mode that lets you save normally, but all the rolls are static so you can't savescum them (at least so easily).

    Lawntoilet Thank you for your vigilance.

    That themepark feeling was already grating in certain areas of BG2.

    Wish they heeded that research. There is a lot of inventory management, I pick everything up with my main, when he can't walk I distribute among the party and when I finally be able to sell it in the goblin base I end up murdering the trader half an hour later and pick all my sold shit back in addition to their shit and redistribute.........

    I wouldn't mind if they implemented toggable WASD controls for the zoomed in camera view in the full release. As pretty as it looks even on medium details from these views...

    ... it controls a bit awkward.

    Did anyone come across this?

    I was doing the Mayrina rescue mission and I managed to sneak by the old hag pawns with only my rogue. I found her cage and lowered her but no conversation is triggering with her nor the Journal is getting updated.
    I went to the next room and found a portal the takes me outside, nothing else. What's the normal sequence of events?

    I didn't attempt this quest on my run, and I can tell that since you have the two evil bitches in your party, you will get nagged for doing it yourself.

    Mayrina is bugged. Load your save if you're lucky. After you defeat the hag, you can talk to Mayrina.

    Loaded many times and unfortunately nothing. I don't know where I'm supposed to fight Old Hag after she fleed to the cave for the first time. Looks like it's also not triggering.
    I will try to kill the pawns and see if anything changes.
